Management of Attention Disorders

Description: Brain Injuries can impact our patients’ ability to pay attention ranging from simply sitting in a room and focusing on a speaker to multi-tasking in a busy environment.  This course will review various deficits associated with attention and examine how these deficits may affect our patients both in a therapeutic setting and outside in the community.  The course will review the current assessments available to identify attention deficits.  Finally, we will discuss evidence-based research available and best practice techniques associated with the treatment of attention deficits

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify different types of attention deficits associated with brain injury.
  • Recognize current assessments used to identify attention deficits.
  • Discuss current evidence based practice and implement best practice techniques for attention deficits
